NUNEATON Town Supporters’ Co-Operative are getting on their bikes tomorrow to raise funds for a club defibrillator.
The value of the medical equipment was seen recently when it was used to help save the life of Bolton Wanderers midfielder Fabrice Muamba.
Now members of the Co-Operative are hoping to raise the £1,400 needed to buy the defibrillator and train people to use it.
With that in mind, a group of Boro supporters will be cycling to Solihull Moors for tomorrow’s match. This sponsored event is in aid of two causes.
Half the money raised from the ride is going to The Mary Ann Evans Hospice, which is The Co-operative’s chosen charity.
The other half being used by The Co-operative to launch the Defibrillator Appeal Fund.
The riders will leave the Triton Showers Community Arena at 11am ahead of the 17.8 mile ride to Damson Park.
The event is also being supported by the Boro Independent Supporters Club, who are making a donation as well as supporting other fundraising.

Anyone wishing to make a donation or find out more can phone John Hobson on 07961 891459 for more details.
The Co-Operative was formed as voice for supporters and a means of raising funds to improve the facilities at Liberty Way.
